Corus Entertainment begins children's recipe contest
Corus Entertainment has begun a promotion in association with the Government of Canada and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada called the "Kid Food Nation National Recipe Challenge." The initiative is intended to educate children about healthy eating habits. It invites children between the ages of seven and 12 to submit an original recipe via website at <https://kidfoodnation.ytv.com>. A judging panel will select 26 recipes based on nutrition, taste and cultural diversity. Two winning recipes will be chosen from each province and territory, with the winners split equally by gender. Winners will receive a trip to a Kid Food Nation event in Ottawa featuring various regional dishes.
The website also offers information about healthy eating and meal preparation, including online videos and segments with television personalities, chefs and other experts. Visitors can also play games, take quizzes, print shopping lists and track recipes.
"The Kid Food Nation program is well underway and with the support of our esteemed partners, we are proud to leverage the power of Corus' kids networks to educate and engage Canadians in making health-conscious choices," said Doug Murphy president and CEO of Corus Entertainment. "Armed with the knowledge and information from this powerful new curriculum, we're calling on kids across Canada to join the movement in making smart food choices and inspiring one another to embrace healthy lifestyles."
